Artist Statement : Being an artist and lecturer I work predominantly in public and on long-term questions, which tackle creative arguments around the ideas of democracy. Recurring themes in my practice are surviving, money and work, as well as migration, societal visions and participation models. I work collaboratively and individually. I formally use site- and situation-specific interventions, installations, video, audio and drawing.

The work is frequently developed site specifically and I actively seek the participation of the general public, often times in the form of discussion and dialogue. I use dialogical formats and methods such as writing, speaking and listening as well as workshops, seminars and Open Space conferences. The interaction with participants opens up a constructed social space in which to engage with each other and/or the world around us. Ideally, I develop my work through dialogue with others, together creating flexible structures to facilitate people to move from interaction to participation, and from participation to collaboration.
